Burna Boy Coming For Crop Over

International Afrobeat Artist To Headline Tipsy All White Party in Barbados for Crop Over 

The Grammy-winning Nigerian artist, who is on the cover of the latest issue of Billboard magazine, will be the first Afropop star and international act to perform at Tipsy Barbados in July during the island’s annual Crop Over festival. 

Born Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, Burna dubs his own style as “Afro-fusion”: a mixture of sounds from the continent along with global strains of hip-hop, EDM, and pop and is widely known for international hits like “Ye,” “On The Low,” “Kilometre,” and “B. d’Or”. 

“With history-making shows headlining the Hollywood Bowl and most recently, selling out the prestigious Madison Square Garden, we are truly honoured and privileged to have an artist of Burna Boy’s caliber not only touch the Tipsy stage but also perform in Barbados during Crop Over,” said Crystal Cunningham, Public Relations Consultant for Twisted Entertainment, the official promoter of Tipsy All White Party and the Barbados leg of Burna Boy’s 2022 Love, Damini Summer tour. 

Described as one of the defining musical acts of today’s African diaspora, Burna Boy was nominated at the 2022 Grammy Awards for Album of the Year (for contributions to Justin Bieber’s Justice) and Best Global Music Performance (for “Do Yourself”). He will perform live on July 17th for the 2022 edition of Tipsy All White Party in Barbados alongside Kes the Band, Voice and Hypasounds. 

The tour announcement follows Burna Boy’s mainstage performance at the Billboard Music Awards where he performed two songs (“Last Last” & “Kilometre”) from his recently announced album, LOVE DAMINI, due for release on June 30th at 7PM EST/July 1st at 12AM in time for his 31st birthday. In his recent Billboard cover story, Burna exclusively spoke to the album’s personal meaning. His latest single “Last Last,” which was launched alongside an official visual directed by Burna himsel, includes a notable sample of Toni Braxton’s “He Wasn’t Man Enough.” Produced by Chopstix (Burna Boy’s “Outside”) the earworm captures Burna singing with startling candor on broken hearts, mistakes, and consolations in a playful yet impactful sound that has become his very own soundtrack.
